Undocumented?

On March 10th a march for immigration rights drew what police estimated was more than 100,000 people in Chicago. In Los Angeles on this past Sunday March 26th police estimated five times that many protested moves by the right wing in Congress to further make it a Federal felony to bein the country illegally. Smaller, but still substantial crowds (ranging from 10,000-50,000) have turned out to protest in cities such as Phoenix, Denver and Milwaukee.

You can read about the marches here and the draconian legislation that has passed the US House here. The picture at left is of the Chicago march. I have seen similar ones of the Los Angeles protest. It commonly is said that many of the marchers are here illegally. That may be so, but pictures like this one insure that they are no longer undocumented.
